    And yet created another issue by using PST instead of PDT.

    Sigh. I guess we just assume they meant PDT, as most people don't seem to understand this and use the ST when they mean DT..

    No greater a mystery than telling time. Fourth grade teachers everywhere are cringing hard.

    Thank God they've helped us "solve" the mystery!

    Or do they really mean PST which changes nothing from the original scheduled downtime but it is friendlier for those discussing the issues with 12:00 AM? :eek:

    Someone clarify! We must have clarity! When will the servers really go offline!? :confused:

    Most of my conversations with people deal with the fact that people don't understand how to be clear.

    Which is why I pity people doing tech support over the phone. When I do tech support for friends and guildmates, my first thing I want to do is to use screen sharing software so I can see what is going on and can just do what needs to be done. Trying to get someone to describe something is so frustrating.

    Please post any EverQuest related downtime in Norrath time.

    I think we should force everyone to learn computer programming. When a comma in the wrong place means your program won't run, it tends to make you pay attention to detail.

    Right. They are going to be down for at least 21,600 ticks.

    :( My old second grade class grasped the concept pretty well. Thus, I am sad.

    Two things I wish would happen: getting rid of daylight saving time and the US converting to metric.

    I just handed in three pieces of darkforge armor that took me way too long to camp for and was in the middle of a battle with an NPC that will only spawn after turning them in, and then Xegony went down. Crap, crap, crap.

    We are wading into it. ;)

    Get involved. On 4/20, insist all your transactions be measured in grams/kilograms! The dollar is already metric. Join this grassroots metrification effort!

    People have been talking about the former issue over the last few years, it could happen eventually. As for the latter, we pretty much already do, in professional settings, but there is a portion of the population that would never admit it. Outside of home construction and related fields, metric is heavily used. Thank the internationalization of basically everything. :)

    But is that 23 o'clock AM or PM? ;)

    One of the old "Spitting Image" books had a world map in it, with Time Zones being defined as "Not really worth bothering about, really. I mean, if the silly dervishes want to take lunch at two-thirty in the morning, well, that's up to them, I suppose" :)
